Crockpot Gingered Chickpea and Spicy Tomato Stew Recipe


This vegetarian stew has a lot going for it. Besides the ethereal smell and taste of this dish, it is dead simple to make. Sauté some onions and spices, toss them with some chickpeas, and let the crockpot do the rest of the work. From the Family Crockpot Applesauce to the Crockpot Chicken, Black Bean and Chipotle Soup, my hard-working slow cooker has earned its keep over the past couple of weeks.

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until the onions begin to brown.

Add garlic cloves, ginger, ground coriander, coriander seeds, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add balsamic vinegar and tomatoes. Bring the mixture to a boil.

Spread the chickpeas in the bottom of a crockpot (slow cooker). Pour the tomato mixture over the chickpeas and stir well.
Cover the crockpot and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours.

Just before serving, stir in spinach. You could use any leafy green that appeals to you, such as Swiss chard or kale.

Serve as a side dish or over rice as an entrée.
